Professional Air Source Heat Pump Installation in Blackheath
Eco-friendly and sustainable
Air source heat pumps are a much more eco-friendly and sustainable way of heating your home and water than other traditional systems that are powered by oil or gas. What makes air source heat pumps so interesting, and so much more cost-effective and environmentally friendly is that they don’t actually generate heat by burning fuel. Instead, they move heat energy from the outside air into your home.
How an Air Source Heat Pump Works
The process begins with outside air passing over a system of tubes that are filled with something called refrigerant. This is a cold liquid that turns into a gas when it is heated. As the heat from the outside air is absorbed by the refrigerant, hot gas is created.
This hot gas has pressure applied to it as it passes through a compressor. The added pressure increases the temperature of the gas further. The hot gas is now sent through a heat exchanger which has cool air or water around it. The heat from the gas is absorbed by the cool air or water and is then transported around your home to warm your radiators or to heat your water. As the hot gas cools, the refrigerant that created it turns back into a cool liquid and is ready to start the process all over again.

If you are still unsure whether this type of system is right for you, there are some things to consider.
- Reduced Carbon Footprint – as an air source heat pump creates more heat energy than the electrical energy it consumes, it can reduce your carbon footprint quite dramatically.
- Reduced Energy Bills – depending on the fuel your current heating system runs on, an air source heat pump can be substantially cheaper to run than traditional heating systems.
- Almost Unlimited Energy Supply – air source heat pumps use the outside air to heat your homes. Even on cold days, heat energy can still be absorbed due to the movement of molecules so you never have to worry about not having a functioning heating system as there will always be air that can be used.
